Nevermind that buying low and selling high is the basis of every in-game and real-world economy, and nevermind that people are just crying 'exploit' because they didn't know about it until after the patch so they're upset that they didn't make a ton of money as a freight hauler when they could have.
Ah ok. I really didn't notice that cause I dont buy the things like that (i.e industrial cells, communication equipment, etc) unless I need them for a mission. The ones I get from drops, I just sell the next trip to a vendor.
